important teachings of these giants of church history, from Justin
Martyr and Augustine to Martin Luther, John Calvin, Dietrich Bonhoeffer,
and many others, underscoring how their teaching has influenced the
church--for better or, occasionally, for worse.Let your faith be
strengthened as you encounter those who paved the way for us, often
risking their lives for the sake of the very beliefs we hold today.
